't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

billion in your corner. raising money for you. he's also a supporter of president obama. so it's interesting the way he seems to be perhaps a post partisan, young politically engaged young man. he's only, what, 28 years old. >> yeah. >> at this point. so i watch the -- i watched "the social network." zuckerberg may not be the most charming guy but has deep pockets. >> having grown up in new jersey, i know the holy trinity of what chris christie needs. you have bruce springsteen, jon stewart perhaps, and bon jovi. who needs zuckerberg when you got these guys, right, maria? >> you know what, i agree with amy. when you have somebody in your corner that's worth billions of dollars, it's not a bad thing. and i -- >> he's not new jersey. >> but you know what, i think it bodes well for the future of bipartisanship, randi. because yes, mark zuckerberg has supported democrats, supported president obama, but i also think it shows chris christie and what an interesting republican he is. and we'll see what happens moving forward. a lot of talk about him in 2016. i know that he's, you know,

, and politics is a contact sport. it was a very, very tough campaign between senator clinton and senator obama, as you portrayed in those past clips. however, i think the genuineness of their relationship came through in that interview. there clearly was regard and respect by both. they worked together. i think they've had an extraordinary run at it in terms of foreign policy. i think secretary clinton has supported the president. i think that's reestablished our standing around the world. i think they managed an exceedingly complex, fast moving and difficult situations in a very skilled manner. i think she gets high marks, soledad, both from republicans and democrats, and from the american people and internationally. >> so she talked about how hard it is on the spouse, and he talked about how hard it is on the staff. so i guess my question would be is bill clinton kind of over it? you've known him since you were 5 years old. he's been very supportive of president obama. critical, i think it's fair to say, but has he also moved on? or is the spouse always struggling? >> i think both made good

nation's capital. i think it's safe to say there is a new level of political intrigue because of something that air on television last night. a rare sight to see. president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down together, side by side, for a joint interview. this as mrs. clinton prepares to leave office on friday. the two indulged in a lot of mutuual praise while talking to "60 minutes." >> hillary will go down as one of the best secretary of states we've had. >> this has been such an honor. >> such an important adviser on a whole range of issues. >> i want to bring in jamie rubin. i have to ask, when you sat down and watched that interview, what do you see? >> i guess just seeing the interview itself is pretty stunning. i have worked in the area for the secretary of state, working for the white house, setting up various media opportunities and never heard of over seen anything like that, where you have the president actually side sbid with a member of his cabinet, any member of his cabinet. anyone at all. the president always goes alone, so

-abiding gun owners who are parents. what it is is viewpoint and political discrimination and political persecution, no doubt about it. >> alisyn: michelle, speaking of schools, let's talk about president obama's plan for public schools in the country. it's called common core. he's setting standards. it's part of the race to the top program. what do we know about common core standards? >> well, a lot of parents and teachers and educators out there are learning more and more about it. it was really stealthily funded and seeded through the race to the top and federal stimulus programs, which were basically bribes to get states to sign on to these bogus standards before they were even written. so there was some core constitutional issues here about local control. for my perspective president reason why i'm devoting much more of my time and my syndicated column and loss in my blog to this issue over the next several weeks and months is that it is an undermining of academic excellence in this country. it is a trend of the left to undermine western civilization requirements, core math learnin

on immigration reform for almost two years now. it was seen more as a political message ahead of an election rather than a genuine push for change here. the thing is, now the administration thinks they may be able to accomplish something. >> in 2011, president obama went to the border town in el paso to push for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of imgrants. >> reporter: that went no where now in a second term, the president is trying it again. heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for employers to ensure they hire documented workers, with punishment if they don't. and the most significant and controversial part of the plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, including registering with the government, undergoing background checks, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents, including george w. bush. >> congress' failure to act is a disappointment. >> reporter: president obama said that some undocumented young immigrants would stop. but
